Contributing photographer Jason of disneygeek.com sends us these photos from his trip to the parks on Friday, October 24, 2014.

As the tram passed by the backstage area of Disneyland through the fence you can see the sections of the Christmas tree are out and ready to be tested then assembled.

This World of Disney entrance is still Halloween merchandise but garland and other decorations are up in the windows and in the store.

A large portion of the World of Disney now features Christmas merchandise.

A look around since it was not crowded (seems the near 90 degree temps outside and the fact that it is a week before Halloween meant there was no rush for the Christmas merchandise).

A Grumpy shirt I do not remember from years past.

The work in the center of the Esplanade has wrapped up since my last trip.

The compass is still there and features all its wear but around it now is plain concrete so the sections that were most damaged are gone.

Over to Disneyland…Last visit I did not get any good pictures of the newly finished planter near City Hall.

The curb work was wrapped up last visit but again it was dark so I did not get pictures. Here are some. In preparation for the new walkway they have taken out much of the curb from the corner back to the Mad Hatter and made it a ramp.

Space Mountain and Big Hero 6 as the sun has almost set for the evening. No Ghost Galaxy lighting. Is that reserved just for the party now?

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 10/24/14

Another display of Big Hero 6 merchandise, this one in the Star Trader.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 10/24/14

For the Halloween Party the Big Thunder Trail becomes spooky with lighting and sound effects. Here are a couple video clips along the trail and then one of the Rivers of America as the fog was starting up for the evening. This was right before 7:00pm and the park closing for day guests like me.

The Rivers of America were being covered in fog for the party.

Disneyland Resort Photo Update - 10/24/14

The fog effect looked much better in person than my pictures… it was 7:00pm and the CMs started asking for wrist bands and asking guests to head toward the exits. So I could not really play around to try and get a good picture.
